Charming Cottage that the whole family will love

  • 5 of 5
We rented the cottage for our son's graduation from the US Coast Guard Academy and we couldn't have been happier. Manny and Irene were one of only 2 places we contacted (out of 15!!)that didn't hike the price up of their rental just because it was graduation. The cottage has plenty of room for the whole family with the 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - we were never in each others way. Manny and Irene stocked the cottage with all the essentials - blender, wine opener, pitcher,as well as paper towels, soap, cleaning supplies, etc. The use of the gas bbq grill came in handy when we had people over for lunch and there was plenty of room in the dining room and wrap-around porch for everyone to visit together. The information booklet prepared by Irene and Manny helped us to find great places to eat like Flanders Fish Market and also reminded us that it wasn't quite yet the "season" yet for other restaurants to be open past 7 p.m. Irene and Manny helped us place our "congrats" banner in the yard by providing the stakes and hammer and were helpful and kind without being intrusive (they live across the street). The cottage is a short walk to the beach and although the weather didn't cooperate for us to enjoy it, the area around the cottage is walker/jogger/runner friendly. Park is across the street if you have younger ones and it was a quick drive on I-95 or a beautiful little longer scenic drive to the Academy.
I would not hesitate recommending this rental to anyone.
Thank you Manny and Irene for making sure we made great family memories.

Tranquillity Regained

  • 5 of 5
Winding through the neatly maintained landscape and homes that constitute Giants Neck, it created an anticipation of solitude and tranquillity as we approached our home for a week. The spell was not broken as we eased onto the trimmed grass next to the "cottage". Irene and Manny, our hosts whom we had never met, were out of town. We found the doors unlocked and the key in the kitchen; the place was immaculate. Everything that would be needed to live comfortably, including ALL kitchen needs, were there. The tubs of cooking "stuff" in our car would remain there. Plenty of hot water, plenty of heat to ward off the late April chill, and comfortable beds with flannel sheets, that Irene had so thoughtfully added. The beaches, marshes, ponds, sunrises, sunsets, friendly neighbors, a quick trip to Long Island from New London, on the ferry (just because it was only 15" away), bike rides through the adjacent Rocky Neck State Park, the silent trains curving along the shore.........all this made our departure back to Virginia one week later a quiet trip. We will return to Irene and Manny's hospitality on a "Giants Neck" of tranquillity... as the world swirls beyond.
